    • Suggestion: Veteran Units

      I have noticed that the devs try to make this game represent real-life situations. I would like to suggest that units that survive battles should have points towards a veteran status that will give it bonuses in later battles. In real life battle veterans are often better at fighting than new recruits. It would also make the game more exciting because players would utilize hospitals more to heal units and players who know how to minimize casualties would be able to be in a better position later in the game. Also, this does not take away from the regular upgraded units, because units could still be upgraded in the regular manner, but just have veteran status. I have found it frustrating game after game that my units, who are veterans of many battles, do not improve in some way over newly produced units. This is similar to Command & Conquer games which allow for veteran units after battle. What do you guys think?
    • That's an officer.
      A infantry officer is called a seasoned veteran for a reason.

      Like what @ewac123 said, just put a seasoned veteran officer in the stack and it gives the said bonuses.

      Thank you for letting me know, I am new here and still figuring things. Anyway, if enough people request it they may change it. Although, I do realize they have a small team and cannot make every little change overnight.

      There, corrected it for you.
